When configuring ArcGIS server and the GIS Server Directory locations do the folders themselves get created when creating a new site in Manager? Also at what point is the arcgisserver folder created?

Only the default parent AGS folder is created for a new site.  You would need to create subfolders off this parent folder, but you can only create 1 level of subfolders in AGS.  I believe the arcgisserver folder is created when you install the AGS software.

Hi William,

Confirming that all of the GIS Server directories are created when you create a new Server site in the ArcGIS Server Manager wizard.

Hope this helps,

When installing AGS on one server there was no arcgisserver folder while on another server it was created.

Hi William,

Were you creating a new Server site? I would redo the installation, as I suspect something went wrong.

Hope this helps,
